The Waters in and of Our World still hold many Mysteries.

Much of the Seascapes… 95+% still so left to explore.

The amount of Water of/in Our Planet is immense, unfathomable.

Over 70% so covered. Underground Waters too.

On and In Our World. Legends, Traditions, Olden Cultures-

 

oft involve, invoke Watery Natures within. Within the

Majority of Ancient Civilisations too, Water held prime

position. A great and vital necessity. Of many… Natures.

 

Within Ours as well. Well as

Giants well

“… Below the thunders of the Upper Deep,

Far far beneath, in the abyssal Sea…

Ancient, dreamless, uninvaded Sleep

The Kraken Sleepeth…”

 

Alfred Lord Tennyson 1809-92. Therein.

 

 

Herein.

The Unicorn… is The Rhino.

The Dragon… is The Pterodon.

The Coelacanth… is a Fish… not Extinct. Still.

Giant Creatures in Our World too, had their

Times, Places within History.

 

Giant Skeletons, Bones,.. esp. of the Dinosaur Fam.

and Mammoths have been found Alls overs

Our World. Legends

 

of and from The Sciences show such as The Elephant

and Whale Species are Giants as well. Well as still

Living

in Our World. Legends so and Tell;..

 

The Kraken

is The Giant or Colossal Squid. So named.

Which, like Whales, Elephants… still exists.

 

Now.

Out There.

 

 

With 10 Arms.

Termed Marine Mollusks. Of The Cephalopods Fam.

The Squid, like the Octopus, has Eight Tentacled Arms. Arms

along which sit rows of Suckers. Suckers surrounded by

rough, horned tooth-like Rings.

 

Further Armed also. Also

with a Pair of Extra Special Long Tentacled Arms.

Which can extend and pass the Others. In Length.

Retractable, almost hidden when not in use. Useful

too are the Tips. Clawed.

 

The Mouth is a very hardened structure.

A Beak.

Used to chop and slice Food into smaller chunks

to swallow.

 

 

Extremely quick, agile and built for Deep Waters.

Water Jet Pulse Movements.

Dark Ink for use against Predators.

Oft hunting in Packs.

 

Gill Breathing, The Squid has no need at Alls. To surface.

Maximum Sizes unknown.?.

 

Estimated: 20+ mtrs… 60+ feet Length…

(…NOT including the Extra Long Tentacled Arms…).

 

 

By Modern Times,

Places in Our World Legends

so writ and well described in such as the

Natural History of Norway

by Bishop Eric Pontoppidan of 1752, so noting ’twas:

 

“…Incontestably the Largest Sea Monster in The World…”

 

More recently:

In 2011 a Pack of The Giant Kraken surrounded, capsized a Boat,

attacked

and Killed Seven Fishermen in the Sea of Cortés, Mexico.

 

 

The Marine Biologist Dr. Luis Santiago from the

Universidad Autónoma Baja California Sur;..

who was rushed to this scene by the Sea, noted:

 

“…We captured one of the attackers. She is female and we believe

most of the pack to be female because of their size. We also

believe they coordinated the attack by using pigment cells

to communicate, which is very typical in a situation like this. I’m

afraid we may be seeing more of these attacks in the coming

years, and possibly forever…”

 

 

Beach Area Closures, Fishing Banned by Authorities the

usual precautions. The Report noted the increase in

such targeted aggression by the Species adding

 

“...Marine biologists

fear that the trend will continue because of the diminishing

number of fish in their tropical hunting waters…”.

Plankton’s Plastic Soup. Modern Recipe… for a Titanic Disaster.?.

Whilst not strictly Islands,.. YET. Our Garbage and Refuse, mainly PLASTICS… piles up indeed. The nature and direction of Oceanic Currents piles Plastics into… a Titanic pile of water-logged Plastic Soup. Maritime Feeders partake this concoction of our… crappy stuff. Our Sciences scream the Disaster and folly of this… as our Bodies are not… Plastic that is. Nor theirs. Plankton and Plastic… not a good mix indeed it seems. Our World Legends. Bonus Slide-Show and Disaster Music… too. Herein.

 

The Eye of a Storm is still… and somewhat calm…

too.

So these Legends… say.

Herein.

 

(Music Link)

 

Where and when Oceans meet… tis similar it seems.

Whilst without and all around massive Natural Forces play out,..

…and amongst each other… too;..

 

Somewhat energetically… and seemingly chaotically…

…a Soup is made.

Plankton’s Plastic Soup.

Modern Recipe…

…for a Titanic Disaster.?.

…that seems to lurk beneath these waves…

…of our junk.

 

 

PLASTICS… in the main therein.

 

Garbage.

Ours…

 

(…And… NOT THE BAND… either and btw…

which is not… GARBAGE… but is,..

…just called that… that is.)

 

 

GARBAGE… NOT THE BAND.

 

SOUP’s up… and down…

…all around…too.

Sailing Craft and even Maritime Expeditions and Explorations oft followed the Winds.

Hence the term… Trade Winds for example.

 

Ocean Currents are of a similar Nature.

5 Main Meeting Points.

Sub-Tropical.

5 Gyres.

 

5 Large Serves… of Plastic Soup.

Our throw-aways… supposedly convenient.

 

Several more… on the make… too.

Oceans and Waterways have long been used as a dump.

 

Much of our Litter will degrade away… eventually.

Through the various actions of the Sun, Climate, Waters, Time and etc.

Tis also helped along by various species which may be specialised eaters.

 

 

Plastic’s degradation is basically Plastic which becomes smaller pieced.

Nor is it an vital element or natural molecule substance… either.

 

No known Life-form… has however eaten Plastic per se…

…till now in times Modern.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

The Living Organism… We Call… Phytoplankton. A Pic… magnified much.

 

(Music Link)

 

Plastic… ALL over the World.

 

The Plastics itself too… are just a part of the issue.

ALL Plastics contain Chemicals of some nature.

Not necessarily natural per se.

 

These Chemicals are leached out over actions and time.

Into the Food Chain.

 

Bottom up…

…to us… and beyond indeed.

 

(Video Link)

 

Plastics and Chemicals cause changes even to such simpler Life-forms as Plankton.

Which many Fish… consume.

 

Behavioural and reproductive changes… also.

Biological Barrier Boundaries… are no longer.

 

Many Chemical Reaction Studies and Reports from a variety of the Sciences include and show:..

…an increased risk for Heart/Cardiovascular disease, Cancers including Breast and Prostate, Reproductive dysfunction effects, Metabolic dysfunction, Diabetes, Miscarriages, Neurological and Behavioral disorders… more… too.

 

The growing health risks of plastic are significantly amplified in…

… our growing children,..

…whose immune and organ systems are still in development…

 

…still… growing.

 

Chemical Concoctions… Consumed.

 

The Processing and Manufacture of Plastic;..

…as well as its eventual throw-away and subsequent destruction by such as incineration or dumping,..

…pollutes our Air, Land and Waters.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

Exposes ALL associated Life-forms to Toxic Chemicals,..

…including Carcinogens to varying degrees.

 

The evidence of Health Risks associated with Plastics is…

…growing indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.

 

 

Many of Science now get into… the Deep Blue.

The recognition of damage… too readily skimming on the surface.

 

People over Profit… much more profitable… to some.

 

Such recognition… inspires change.

Perhaps… a chance to grow.

 

We can Dream… and still do.

PLANKTON’s…

…Partaking of Plastic Soup.

Crap.

 

A Global Survey which linked Data from around the world Estimates:

275 Million Tons of Plastic Waste.

 

5-13 Million Tons into our Oceans.

 

Life relies on the Food Chain.

Science has delineated 9 such Global Systems of Life Support.

We are not alone… nor are we… convenient.

 

Our actions… matter… in the end.

 

We eat and drink… Life-forms.

Other Species do similar.

Nature provides Life for all environs. Deep Sea Creatures are not to be found above indeed. Join Shiro in a seek and search that dives down deep to bring back… these pics. Deep Sea Creatures. The Slide-shows.

 

Seafood is a large part of many of our diets.

Sea-Salts… too and more do Our Waters provide.

The nutritious value is high… as is demand.

 

Tis said… we are what we eat.

 

The Food Chain.

Wrapped and warped… in Plastic.

 

Modern.

Convenient.

 

Not fit for Consumption.

 

You are… as well. photocredit/thanks:idlehearts

 

Packaging… that is recycled… into Food.

Into… the Food Chain.

We are… what we eat.!. so the Legends say.

 

A throw-away approach.

A small minded approach with NO long-term Benefits,..

… a somewhat… Titanic Disaster it seems;..

 

…’çept for those for choose… PROFIT OVER PEOPLE.

 

Tis time for a change of Diet.

A chance to… clean up our acts;..

…perhaps indeed it seems.

In and out… of Our Deep Wide Blue.

 

So Our World Legends do say.
